The Great British Garden Revival

I found DG less irritating talking about wild gardens than he was when younger and designing expensive gardens.

Snow candles look lovely and so simple to do, unlike the fantastic hand! Now I just need some snow - but I'd rather not!

How to remove HUGE shrub

Posted: 21/01/2015 at 14:22

We did what obelixx said to start with, then we used the garden tractor mower to pull it out. Make sure you leave some trunk behind to pull on, whether manually or with a machine.

Alan said that when he makes and uses the compost it works well. I wonder if the manufacturers who produce it in bulk have changed anything. Here is the article in the Daily Mail.

Morning all.

-4° frosty.

Post service here is OK but courier is hopeless. They can never find my house even when they have written instructions. Sat Nav doesn't work but they insist on using it even when told it takes them to the wrong house. Took 3 weeks to get a package from M&S.

About butter, afraid I don't like anything else for spreading on bread, toast or crumpets whether it's fattening or bad for you or not. Tried other things, yuk! But I often use olive oil for cooking, or peanut oil as it can reach a high temperature before burning than others and it's non-saturated.

Have watched Britain's Best Gardens. One of them was East Ruston Old Vicarage Gardens which some of you visited last year.

Garden Idea Help

Crab apples are good in small gardens. I have Photinia Red Robin, which is evergreen and has grown quite tall - has been pruned though. You could put trellis on top of the fence and grow some climbers, such as clematis and honeysuckle.
